North American bitcoin mining company Blockcap Inc. has announced the purchase of an additional 8,400 AvalonMiner mining machines 1246s from miner manufacturing company Canaan. The total number of Blockcap-operated miners to be deployed by Q4 of this year will bring over to 30,000.

Blockcap will deploy the new miners this year valued in today’s secondary market valuation at over $150 million. The purchase of the new Canaan miners will nearly triple Blockcap’s total hashing power compared to from six months ago.

“This acquisition builds on the hard work our team has done to elevate Blockcap as a leader in mining digital assets. We’re growing faster by the day, and we’re also excited about other critical moves that will soon be announced and which will see our best-in-class infrastructure continue to bring value through enhanced quality, reliability and transparency.”

Blockcap’s current operational miners with 10,000 fully operational miners are mining at roughly .95 Exahash per second (EH/s). Thus, the company can approximately mine about six bitcoin (BTC) per day.

With the new installation of the mining hardware, the hashing power of the company will increase to more than 2 EH/s. This will represent over one percent of the total Bitcoin network hashrate globally.
